In short: Friendly atmosphere tempered by tough hills! In full: great race, really friendly atmosphere and great touches with the fun runs and the 4k - all in there was probably 5 generations involved across the different events!
Next time I'll come better prepared for the hill between km 6-8... I thought it was never going to end! :) Date of review: February 20, 2011
In short: Tough as guts and hugely rewarding In full: First time for me despite being a local, and definitely won't be my last! miles 7-9 were an absolute killer, but despite losing both my shoes and falling flat on my face several times I had an absolute blast! highly recommended!

In short: Serene In full: Did this one on a whim having done a 14 miler the day before, so wasn't holding out much hope for a PB... but took 40 seconds off, so really chuffed! I don't have too many rural routes near me so I loved the country lanes and hamlet scenery, and will be back next year. Only bit of advice I would give is to clearer signage at the start... ushering people down the side road at the start was a tad confusing. Date of review: July 13, 2009
In short: Nothing that hasn't already been said - simply spectacular In full: believe the hype - this race is wonderfully marshalled, start/finish was silky smooth, terrain and weather made it a real challenge but the views and feeling of accomplishment made it more than worthwhile. Do not miss this one! Date of review: June 14, 2009
